Jun 7, 2017 - Doug Novotny, RivertonEditor:
The owners of the house that caught fire on Riverview Road on May 26 did not intentionally set the fire. We hired an individual to hire a crew to tear the house down in a controlled manner.
The hired individual took it upon himself to start the fire without our permission or knowledge. We do not condone the burning of the home.
As homeowners, we would never willingly subject the neighbors or fire departments to this careless behavior and lack of consideration of life and property.
Needless to say, the hired individual has been fired.
